MEMBERS OF URHOBO PROGRESSIVE UNION, DURING THEIR VISIT TO PRESIDENT GOODLUCK JONATHAN AT THE PRESIDENTIAL VILLA IN ABUJA ON MONDAY

President Goodluck Jonathan will not transfer the Petroleum Training Institute (PTI) Effurun, Delta State to Kaduna nor Abuja as speculated in some quarters.

The president said this Monday in Abuja when a delegation of the Urhobo Progressive Union (UPU), led by its President-General, Major-General Patrick Aziza (rtd.), paid him a visit at the State House presidential villa, Abuja.

In a statement signed by his media and publicity adviser, Reuben Abati, Mr. Jonathan said his administration attaches the highest possible value to the contributions of the Urhobo to national development and will therefore do all within its powers to address issues that are of concern to the ethnic group.

According to Abati, Jonathan assured members of UPU that all the concerns raised by them at the meeting will be referred to the relevant Federal Ministries, Departments and Agencies for prompt action.

“Government is to solve problems. Our duty is to see how we can address the concerns of all of our people,” the president was quoted as saying.

On speculations surrounding the transfer of PTI from Delta state, President Jonathan dismissed it as a baseless rumour.

He thanked the Urhobo for their support for his administration, saying that he greatly appreciated their frank discussions with him.

In his letter, Senator Abbo explained that his decision to defect to the APC is because of the mismanagement of the PDP in Adamawa state by Governor Umaru Fintiri.

Senator Abbo who is a first-term lawmaker was elected in 2019 to the Senate on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Meanwhile, the name Senator Elisha Abbo became popular amongst Nigerians last year after he made headlines for slapping an attendant in a sex toy shop for ‘disrespecting’ him.

2023 Presidency: Bode George Cautions Buhari About Tinubu

Bode George, Tinubu

Chief Bode George, a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party has warned President Muhammadu Buhari against supporting Bola Tinubu, National Leader of the All Progressives Congress for the 2023 Presidency.

Bode George made this remark in a statement titled, “The jamboree visit to the Villa: My Birthday Offering.”

The former National Port Authority boss warned Buhari against falling to the antics of those who would ignore the issues of Lagos State to engage in a needless scheming in partisan engagement.

Bode-George also condemned the recent visit of some APC chieftains, Chief Bisi Akande, Prince Tajudeen Olusi, Dr Yomi Finnih, and Chief Segun Osoba to the State House, Abuja.

The PDP chieftain said: “The visit of Chief Bisi Akande, Prince Tajudeen Olusi, Dr Yomi Finnih, and Chief Segun Osoba to the seat of power in Abuja is needless, unnecessary, veiled in some poorly hidden agenda that is woven in apparently self-serving ulterior personalised desperation.

“It is easy to discern that the visit is stripped of any patriotic progression, lacking in balanced national leadership, voided of a spirit of sacrifice and developmental vision. The very absence of Bola Tinubu from the jamboree screams to high heavens that the meeting itself is a covert placatory softening of the ground for Tinubu himself. I am pretty certain that in his very absence, Tinubu occupies the centrality of the discussion.

“I will advise Baba Akande who governed Osun State with principled, incorruptible leadership to kindly help us drop off Bola Tinubu at Iragbiji as he makes his way back to Ila-Orangun, rather than engaging in fruitless pleading sessions for a man who is fixated on a warped pipe-dream about governing Nigeria. He should pay restitution for the egregious stripping of the Lagosian coffers.”
